This will be a six-week course lasting approximately 1 –1 1/2 hours each session. This class is intended to give you a broad understanding of worship experiences, including the Islamic faith which we will engage on the last session. The first class will be on Presbyterianism so that we have a common reference point as we look at other denominations and faith practices going forward.
